Building a Foundation. Pace Law School has positioned its courses and programs in International Law to capture the global scope of legal initiatives and enterprise.
Graduate program for lawyers from outside the U.S., providing a background in the common law as practiced in the U.S. and the opportunity to create a specialization based on individual career goals.
An annual event, the Pace International Student Essay Competition on uniform international commercial law has over the years attracted responses from scholars from 33 countries. Certificates of Merit are awarded to talented students and faculty mentors. Candidates for Pace Certificates of Merit have come from Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, Germany, Hong Kong, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Scotland, and the United States.
The in-depth curriculum in International Law is open to all law students at Pace. Those who concentrate their interest in International Law can graduate with a Certificate in International Law, which is awarded to students who successfully complete 12 International Law credits with an average grade of B (and no grade lower than a C), and an overall grade point average of 2.5. To receive the certificate, students are required to take the foundation course in International Law and can satisfy the remaining 8 credits by choosing from our elective course in international public and/or private law.
Several co-curricular organizations, such as the International Law Society, the Pace International Law Review, and the Graduate Program, plan activities - including language tables, international law lunch discussions, and lectures on emerging issues of transnational law and foreign policy - that enrich the international program every year. The presence of Fulbright and Muskie scholars and other students from around the world adds to the cultural diversity that defines Pace.
